Sylvia,

Thanks for the kind words. Two months in is a great accomplishment. They are EASILY the hardest two months of your quit you will EVER have.

But you will still be amazed at how much better it's going to get!

At 6 months, it's none (though it's been like that for at least 2-3 months).

Sometimes I try to remember what it was like though...

As an update, the 21 year old I referred to is still smoking regular cigarettes, along with his e-cigarette.

No surprise to those of us who understand the law of addiction.

<r>Ana,<br/> <br/> This article was helpful to me, and if you're like most of us, will be dealing with it soon (if not already).

Ana,

Congratulations on taking your life back. You have no idea all the blessings- both large and small- that await you as you continue on your journey. I'm only 6 months in, and stand amazed at how much better life is already.

Jason,

I love this series. I have also noticed a voice coming back stronger, and with greater range. It's one of the bonuses I didn't anticipate, but really appreciate. I can even get through the Hallelujah Chorus now!

<t>Awesome job, Endura, and congratulations on Silver!<br/> <br/> The hard part is well back in the rear view mirror. All that really remains is remembering that you're an addict, and that means one= all.<br/> <br/> If you can't say no to the first, you can't say no to second. <br/> <br/> All the be...
